Chumash Classes: Tetzaveh, Part 4: Description of the "Chosen Mishpat" the breastplate

Chp. 28 verses 22 - 35: Description of the "Chosen Mishpat" the breastplate and how it was connected to the "Ephod," the apron. All the names of the tribes of Israel were engraved into the stones of the breastplate. It was folded in half and on the inside was placed the ineffable name of G-d, which was called the "Urim VeTummim." This name was the power which caused the letters on the stones to light up. The "Me'il" the robe, was completely blue with pomegranates that were made of blue, purple, and scarlet thread on its skirts. In addition there were golden bells between them all around. A bell and a pomegranate all around the edge of its skirt.
